Job Seeking News

You guys!
I finally have good news to share with you - I've been offered {and have accepted!} a job with a local University! I'm more than overjoyed with this opportunity, and am eager to start my career here in Pittsburgh.

Great things are worth waiting for.
I interviewed for this position on February 2nd, and just got my offer on Monday. That's almost a MONTH! What a slow process! I thought the ship might have sailed.

Bonuses of the new job:
I can walk to work.
While I'm walking to work, I pass by my favorite French patisserie.
I'll be able to continue helping others through public health.
It's a raise from my last pay check.
My fruit bowl will now have a new home.
I'll have my own office. {I think.} cube. And it's fabulous!
I get a free bus pass.
I'll work in a swank new building.
I won't have to work in dahntahn anymore!
My "office decorations" can come out of storage.
After six months of employment, I can attend the University for graduate school...for free.

Husband is proud of me, and is doting on me like a good spouse. We've gone out to eat/have drinks at least 3 times in celebration, and we're going to the Eli Young Band concert {Throwback from my college days in West Texas} tomorrow night. Boots and beer, I tell ya!

Also, I hope to give a few updates in PGH Dining and What I Wore Today this weekend.

I start on Monday!
